Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Pros: "Premium seats were more comfortable, crew in our section was great, newer airplane was lovely, food and drink were really good."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything within WestJet’s control that was bad."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Cons: "Tv in the seat to make the long flight pass more quickly."
Pros: "Flight and ground crew handled a cancelled flight perfectly, with good communication with the passengers, efficient handling of bag retrieval and hotel accommodation. “Rescue” flight following day was appreciated."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."
Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
Pros: "Excellent all round. Good price. Nice seats. Excellent staff. Good boarding and disembarking. Highly recommended."
Cons: "It does not have free food and entertainment, but for the price this is acceptable."
Cons: "The food was extremely mediocre for an $18 meal."
Pros: "Good schedule from Bermuda to Toronto, good price, early arrival, professionals!"
Pros: "Staff were helpful and smiling. Good value"
Cons: "We needed a better choice of food"
Pros: "Kind helpful staff"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment and food on long haul flights"
Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"
Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."
Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"
Pros: "Standard things like cleanliness in bathrooms and friendliness of crew were good."
Cons: "It was definitely colder than usual on the plane."
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""
Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"
Pros: "Crew were really nice and good entertainment."
Cons: "Paying for food and alcohol was a bit of a downer."
Pros: "I had never heard of WestJet and only booked the flight because it was the least expensive ticket I could find. I was shocked when I was given my boarding pass because I got a first class seat. A comfortable seat is such a blessing on an overnight flight because you can sleep fairly comfortably. Also, the food and especially the wine were excellent. The flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend WestJet to anyone."
Pros: "Plus seats reasonable price and very comfortable"
Cons: "No lounge access"
The delay could have been shorter. Rough traveling late at night with an infant and then a delay.
The pretzels were ok, but a wider assortment of snack choices would be better.
Cons: "Very full flight when covid cases are at all time highs. Not possible to social distance in these conditions."
Pros: "Clean plane, courteous personnel, everything on time"
Cons: "Getting the food back would be nice."
Pros: "It was my first time flying and the attendants were very nice and cordial on flight. I would love to fly again but next time with my children for a vacay."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "For the longer leg of my trip, there was no entertainment. No screens at all! No food besides some dry pretzels on a 5 hour flight and the crew was borderline surly. They were running into people with the drink cart, bumping any edge of arm or leg that was in the aisle, not smiling, not pleasant at all."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The 1st class crew were amazing!"
Cons: "Leg room was too small, food was awful, no taste. Bathroom smelled even from take off."
Pros: "By luck, I had a seat between myself and the other person in my row. It would have been tight, otherwise. Crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The seats on the flight were placed very close together - felt very constricting. Takeoff and landing were a bit rough."
Cons: "Honoring their flight schedules....I had two cancellations back to back trying to get to Montgomery, AL. I finally canceled my American flight and flew with Delta. Delta delivered flawlessly."
Cons: "Never made it. Stranded at LAX."
Pros: "Crew was fine but you can’t hear anything they are saying over intercom"
Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent"
Cons: "Great service always"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Boarding, no gate changes, no flight delays"
Cons: "Everything was cancelled or delayed, missed connection are very common."
Pros: "I had a passenger next to me with a very heavy perfume scent"
Cons: "Is ok"
Pros: "The crew was amazing on our American flight from DFW to PV"
Pros: "Nothing, we had to deplane."
Cons: "This flight was completely messed up and ultimately ruined my connection and subsequent travel plans. We were told there was a 30 minute delay because of the pilot and shortly after we were told to deplane. I had to cancel. rebook with another airline while my bag traveled to Boston"
Pros: "Short flight. Connection was gate next door."
Cons: "Seating was for waif midgets."
Pros: "Efficient and very nice crew. Great flight overall- Pilot pointed out when we were passing Greenland for an excellent aerial picture."
Pros: "The people working for Avianca were especially helpful and curious. We need extra help with wheelchair assistance for my wife."
Cons: "We delayed one day do to rescheduling"
Cons: "Mechanical delays caused me to miss my uncle's funeral."
Cons: "Cancellations and the staff was not very helpful at all! Very disappointed"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving Chicago due to maintenance issues. Because of this we missed our scheduled train therefore I had to purchase more tickets."
Cons: "Terrible rough landing for no reason"
Cons: "Delays Always delays. Old planes."
Pros: "Hostesses were great. And pilot landed safely"
Cons: "Stayed too long on the jet way. No available gate"
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly."
Cons: "So many rows of seats crammed in and no where for people to put their bags. People from front of Llane had to go to rear to place and retrieve their luggage. Maybe space the rows a little better or retire these older planes."
Pros: "Great landing, given there were issues with the flaps that slow down the plane. It was a short flight, so there wasn't as diverse entertainment as you would usually get on a longer haul. Typical AA biscotti and beverages."
Cons: "Airport experience at Hamilton. Arrived 2.5 hours early and we could not enter through U.S. CBP because we were too early.... We were told we needed to run our boarding passes by the check in counter agents prior to being able to go through for CB&P."
Cons: "Checking my bag when there was plenty of overhead cabin space"
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and pleasant"
Cons: "No IFE, bug not a big deal I had my own."
Pros: "Crew updates during a technical issue investigation."
Cons: "This plane is very small for an international flight, and it does not have the proper entertainment system for long flights. To top it off, the plane was very smelly; I got a headache because of it. We also had to return to the gate due to a technical issue and ended up leaving almost two hours late, which defeated the purpose of picking this flight over the rest as it was the one that was supposed to land in Milan the earliest. I will be careful next time I pick a flight to check what kind of airplane they're using. My assumption that international flights have the best airplanes seems to be wrong :(."
Pros: "Wheelchair was ready in La Guardia airport, but transfer from gate C to gate B had impossible stairs or shuttle outside. This option required another security check which was terrible. TSA personnel was rude and incompetent. In the end there was no need for such scrutiny and we were released, but the emotional impact lasted for hours."
Pros: "The staff were very nice and I had a lot of leg room. The food was yummy, especially the snacks."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I was seated on the aisle next to a very large man so I had to sit on the far end on my seat."
Pros: "The crew was extremely personable, friendly, courteous and helpful. They must have come down the aisles about 20 times during the trip."
Cons: "The food was not great and the movie selection was pretty bad."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats were very small and very tight bags did not stow under seats like usual"
Pros: "enjoyed the movie selection, liked the old and new movie selections and as the flight was long watched 4 different movies."
Cons: "Paying for alcohol other than wine and beer, seemed petty to pay $8 for a tiny serving of vodka"
Pros: "The crew was excellent people, very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "American airlines is the only airline without TV screens in each seat. Furthermore, the control in my seat was not working."
Pros: "Was able to store my carry on and arrived early"
Pros: "Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected."
Cons: "AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch or raise legs. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "I took an aisle seat for more room Glad to be going home"
Cons: "Still not enough leg room"
Pros: "More improved than the last trip I took with AA to Denver. Efficient boarding."
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."
Pros: "Handicap boarded with sufficient extra time"
Cons: "Not enough room."
Cons: "The crew really seemed like they didn't like their job, and didn't want to be there. I felt kind of bad for them, nobody should be stuck in a job they hate."
